Quality camp time

Austin Kendall, the four-star quarterback from Charlotte Christian School, made his way down to Clemson last week for camp.

Ranked by Scout.com as the No. 17 quarterback in the class of 2016, Kendall owns offers from Clemson, Kentucky, Miami, N.C. State, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia, among others. Clemson jumped on board with their offer in March, just a few weeks after he was in town for Junior Day.

Last week's one-day stop in Tigertown was his first since that Junior Day visit.

"It was good. [Chad Morris] and [graduate assistant] coach [Joe] Craddock…I have a really good relationship with them as well, and coach [Danny] Pearman, my recruiting coordinator, but it was good," Kendall told CUTigers recently.

"They showed me some stuff I can work on. [Morris] has always been a good teacher. In just a few years, he went from high school to college and that's pretty impressive, I mean it was really good getting to work with him."

Kendall said there's more to Clemson's appeal than just football.

"It showed me there's more to the program than being a student-athlete on game days," he said. "Education is first. I could get a great education. That's one thing they pointed out. It's not just football."

The 6-2, 200-pound quarterback also camped at Kentucky and attended a Penn State satellite camp in Atlanta. He'll hit South Carolina for a camp later on in the summer.

Kendall has no leaders.

"I don't really have a favorite right now," he said. "Tennessee, Kentucky, N.C. State, obviously, Clemson, they're in it. It's really hard to say right now."

As a sophomore, Kendall completed 111-of-182 passes for 1,668 yards with 20 touchdowns. He also rushed for over 300 yards and three scores.
